    Boehner offers to take debt limit off the table - The Washington Post

    The Rs think we don't know what the debt limit is. They think we don't know that they voted in favor of borrowing the money but now want to vote against paying our debts which would get us another credit downgrade.

    Just like the last time, its the downgrade the Rs want because they also think we're too dumb not to see and understand the crap they pulled with their lies.

    [Its self evident its long past the time for this guy to go as Speaker.
    Do you have a similar hunch that the same pair of vice grip pliers that Obama had squeezed down ever so tightly on David Petraeus testicles while he was still head honcho over at CIA might now be being worn by Congressman John Boehner (R-OH)
    oh God! America is so screwed]

    "Brilliant! Let’s take the one bargaining chip we have and give it away for nothing.

    Via WaPo:

    House Speaker John A. Boehner has offered to push any fight over the federal debt limit off for a year, a major concession that would deprive Republicans of leverage in the budget battle but is breathing new life into stalled talks over the year-end “fiscal cliff.”

    The offer came Friday, according to people in both parties familiar with the talks, as part of the latest effort by Boehner (R-Ohio) to strike a deal with President Obama to replace more than $500 billion in painful deficit-reduction measures set to take effect in January.

    With the national debt already bumping up against the $16.4 trillion cap set last year, Congress risks a government default unless it acts to raise the debt ceiling in the next few months.

    Many Republicans had argued that party leaders should use the threat of default to demand additional spending cuts from Obama. But Boehner’s offer would head off that potentially nasty fight — at least until the end of next year."

    Raising the debt limit means you will just keep borrowing, and spending till our demise. Really, cut the damn spending. :eusa_pray:

    Whatever happened to "Our lives, our fortunes, our sacred honor" Obviously going the same way as Rome did when Romans discovered the pleasures available in the public baths.

    It’s remarkable the cluelessness of the right, on so many levels.
